Globe and Mail energy reporter McCarthy taking buyout
Shawn McCarthy, the energy reporter at the Globe and Mail in Toronto, has accepted the paper’s buyout offer and will be leaving the paper at the end of the summer.
He writes on various aspects of the international energy industry, from oil and gas production and refining, to the development of new technologies, to the business implications of climate-change regulations.
Recent coverage includes how the energy industry is coping with the climate change challenge; international energy supply and demand; the development of massive shale gas deposits in North America, and the renewable energy technology.
McCarthy took up the role of global energy reporter after a three-year stint as The Globe and Mail’s correspondent in New York. There, he covered U.S. corporate stories, including the collapse of Enron and Martha Stewart’s insider trading trial, as well as general U.S. news and features.
He also covered international political stories at the United Nations, and contributed to The Globe and Mail’s U.S. coverage, including the 2004 presidential election.
